Applause for Applesauce
Give applesauce lovers a new flavor profile.

And, of course, no sugar added. About $3.59 for a six-pack at Super Natural in Spring Valley.
Lunch might taste better coming out of a hip new bag. Stöh, by Milkdot, is a PVC-free soft bag in blue/chocolate or pink/chocolate, with an ID tag that you can customize with a photo. The interior has mesh pockets so food stays fresh, and the foam insulation keeps food cold. The easy magnetic closure means kids don't have to bother with zippers or clasps. Get one for your child and one to bring lunch to the office. $25 at www.Milkdot.com.
